After Judge Kavanaugh was nominated earlier this year by President Donald Trump, many people voiced their concerns with the choice. Among these was the organization End Citizens United who is fighting to get reform in campaign financing. They believe that Judge Kanavaugh will be a huge detriment to the United States and will put the right of millions of citizens at risk.
With campaign finance reform being such an important issue as of late, End Citizens United has no doubt that Judge Kavanaugh will side solely with the extreme right in the Supreme Court. If this is the case, special interest groups and corporate interests could very well be placed in higher importance than the rights of the rest of the United States. While the mega-doners may be paying large amounts to different campaigns of the Republican party, End Citizens United believes that the average American will ultimately be paying the price.

There is a long history of Judge Kavanagh basing his decisions in a way that line up with special interests groups and corporations have donated to the Republican party. If he becomes a member of the Supreme Court, many are worried that the verdict by the Supreme Court that allows PACs to not reveal donors will be upheld permanently with little chance of being able to be overturned. They fear that under the vote of Judge Kavanaugh, democracy will essentially be up for sale to the highest bidder.
According to the Daily Beast, most Americans are concerned about the Supreme court nomination. End Citizens United has battled other Supreme Court decisions and nominations that they see as potentially dangerous or problematic to the right of American citizens since their formation. They have voiced their concern with a previous nominee of Trump’s, Judge Gorsuch, who they also saw as a threat to passing campaign finance reform.
End Citizens United wants to let every average voter know that they have the power to make a difference in their country. They have arranged forums in which citizens can voice their concern and be shown how to take action against the injustices they see happening.
